Default DATA DATA GIVE ME THE DATA- Post the delta:cruise AIT vs. Ambient temps

Post the delta: cruise AIT vs. Ambient temps-- after the coolant/oil has warmed up. Also post your filter location, if you have a cold air box, and any other pertinent information.


With my setup, in cruise, I see AITs that are around 20 degrees F higher than ambient. I have a cold air box for the intake but I think my compressor might be heatsoaked from the adjacent manifold.

and the sensor is AFTER the IC? I see just over ambient in cruise (3-7*F).

Mine is about half way between the intercooler and TB at the level of the crank bolt. The sensor is mounted on the backside of the pipe if you are looking at the windshield. I'm seeing about 12 degrees above ambient.

MAT correction at this location is:

20 -2
65 0
75 0
85 -1
100 -3
120 -3

120 hasn't actually been tuned yet. I couldn't get temp high enough in winter weather.

MAT correction value = 50%

My AIT sensor is mounted here too. Sticks out toward the hotside though.
